“This guy was from Yemen. Maybe a terrorist, that is scary. TX has tuition only and the students must apply for citenship and pay their own tuition. This is a TX passed with a veto proof majority by the TX Legislature. Not amnesty.”

Two points on the above:

1) I don’t think anyone makes the illegals apply to be citizens (and I don’t think they can...yet).

2) The veto-proof majority was during Perry’s first days in office. He could have moved Houston 500 miles to the West if he wanted to back then. I have no doubt that if Perry opposed the DREAM ACT it would not have become law. And, if Perry actually opposed it, he would have vetoed. So saying it passed by a veto-proof majority is irrelevant, considering Perry’s actions.

The scars on his head indicate a good likelihood that he has been involved in violence of some sort. It’s the sort of marker that is used in combat environs to identify the enemy. Deport him? Not yet, waterboard first, then deport.

And even if you ignore what was happening in 2001 (which, btw, was when Perry spoke of open borders), Perry came back and strongly defended the legislation in 2007 when Republicans in the legislature were talking about repealing it, and again he defended it strongly in 2011 at the last debate. There is a point at which it's clear that Perry likes the legislation.
